Turbine has set the date for The Lord of the Rings Online: Rise of Isengard's invite-only beta: Wednesday, July 27. North American and European gamers can pre-purchase this third expansion to get preferred access to the beta, which is a little sad, but that's how we roll in 2011.

Because one option isn't enough, there are three choices for pre-purchasers. There's a Base Edition ($29.99), Heroic Edition ($39.99), and the suitably named Legendary Edition ($49.99).

Rise of Isengard Base Edition – Includes the full Rise of Isengard expansion plus:

  • Steed of the Gap, a new in-game mount with matching red cosmetic cloak for every character on your account
  • In-game title – Guard of the Isen
  • 25% XP boost for all characters on an account up to level 65

Rise of Isengard Heroic Edition – Includes the full Rise of Isengard expansion plus:

  • 1,000 Turbine Points for use in the LOTRO Store
  • Steed of the Gap, a new in-game mount with choice of matching cosmetic cloak and armor in your choice of red, white or green for every character on your account
  • In-game title – Guard of the Isen
  • 25% XP boost for all characters on an account up to level 65

Rise of Isengard Legendary Edition -- – Includes the full Rise of Isengard expansion plus:

  • 1,000 Turbine Points for use in the LOTRO Store
